I am between L & XL. I ordered XL and it fits almost perfectly. Agree with other reviewers that the solid side is not as nice of material as the plaid side, but it will work well for me - Christmas, Valentines day, etc.

Very nicely made vest. The red side has pockets, the plaid side does not. Fits well on my 42 short frame.
Husband looked great valentines night -

I gave this vest to my hubby and we went out to a dance at our club valentines night. At 79, he looked terrific!
Nice Vest -
I purchased the vest for my husband to wear during the holiday season. He loves it and it is nice quality. The back of the vest could have been a little longer, so if you have a long torso, this vest is not for you.
Plaid Vest -

It is a great vest. Fits well and I love that it reverses. Very good quality. It will be a part of my outfits for a long time.
Better than I expected -
I had a similar vest that seemed to have shrunk in the closet. It wasn't reversible as this one is so it is much more versatile.
Looked all over for a red vest. -
I have been looking for years for a new red Christmas vest to replace the one my husband outgrew. I was happy to find one on your website. It was well made and we liked the fact that it was reversible. It will look very nice on the plaid side with my husband's tux. The only disappointment was it was advertised as all wool but the back was not made of wool. My husband wears it Christmas eve with out a jacket and we would have liked it better if it was all wool.
Such an awesome Christmas vest! Very well made and classy!
An ancient and universal fiber
One of the oldest and most universal fibers, felted or woven wool has been used for garments and household linens since the earliest civilizations. Wool textiles have been documented as far back as 3,000 B.C.
The superior quality of wool from merino sheep
Thousands of years of evolution and selective breeding have resulted in merino sheep capable of producing a super-fine wool fiber. One square inch of merino fleece produces nearly four times as many wool fibers as other breeds of sheep. Interlaced with millions of microscopic air pockets, which act as Nature’s most effective insulator, merino fibers naturally reduce the passage of heat by trapping air between the woolen fibers. Because merino fibers are smaller in diameter and more abundant than in any other wool, they trap more air and keep the wearer naturally more comfortable.
Versatile, durable and comfortable
Merino wool keeps the wearer warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. These remarkable fibers also absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture, pulling vapor away from the body so that the wearer stays dry and comfortable regardless of the temperature.
Fine merino wool is soft, not scratchy!
Modern technology has made it possible to sort and select only the finest merino fibers. Merino wool has a microscopic diameter—about one-third to one-tenth the thickness of a human hair. The smaller the diameter, the finer, softer, and less scratchy the fabric will be. Lustrous merino wool produces fabric that can be worn next to the skin without discomfort, is soft, and always provides an exceptional hand and distinctive style. Orvis offers a wide range of luxuriously soft merino wool clothing for men.
